The next two diagrams are product research and development simplified flowchart, interactive design link is increased in the demand and visual design, can visually see interactive design played a connecting link, but in fact what interaction designers do, how to work with other positions better cooperation, the following will be a detailed explanation. Before that, let's remember the nature of interaction design: Planning interactive behavior and designing the most effective form of achieving behavior.
